In and out the bramble bush: ADR in Queensland courts and legislative
Date of this Version
This article examines aspects of ADR in and about the Queensland Supreme Court. It deals with both the legal-institutional features of the court-connected ADR processes in that State and their actual operation in practice. It discusses some of the trends in these forms of ADR and attempts to develop some explanatory theories for these trends. Finally, it deals with the broader context of ADR developments in the State, with particular reference to the legislation induced by the insurance crisis which has developed ADR outside, and in some respects instead of, that which occurs in the court system.
